The electric vehicle revolution has begun

We predict that by 2032, half the global sales of new passenger vehicles will be battery electric vehicles, followed by commercial vehicles in 2038. The electric vehicle revolution has begun, with the next five years likely to see the highest rate of change due to technological advancements, investment, and customer demand.

To support this rapid growth in electric vehicles, DNV is at the leading edge of understanding how EVs will shape our energy future. With more than 12 years of direct experience, DNV successfully supports industry and clients to take advantage of the value stream and opportunities within the EV revolution.
